Nova Meat has developed a synthetic, 3D-printed meat that can mimic the texture of beef or chicken. Researcher Giuseppe Scionti, through his Barcelona-based company, developed the meat substitute using vegetable proteins that imitate protein complexes found in real meat. Scionti is slowly working towards having a steak substitute developed in the not-too-distant future. While it might sound like something out of a science-fiction movie, Giuseppe Scionti — the researcher behind Nova Meat — has managed to figure out a way of printing meat using vegetable proteins and a 3D printer, according to a report in El País . For over ten years, the specialist in biomedicine and tissue engineering has been working on bioprinting various synthetic tissues: from artificial corneas and skin to artificial ears.
